An ESPN director died Saturday after suffering a medical emergency while working the NCAA Baseball Super Regional tournament in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the outlet announced Sunday.
Kyle Brown, 42, was a 16-year employee at the network.
ESPN’s statement described the father of four as a “deeply admired” and “highly accomplished” member of their production team who had captured two Sports Emmy Awards during his career.
Brown, who played baseball as a pitcher at Ohio State, worked in a number of sports, including baseball, basketball, Monday Night Football and college football, the statement said.
Brown is survived by wife Megan; their four children, 14-year-old Makayla, 11-year-old Carson, 9-year-old Camden, and 6-year-old Madyn, and a beloved dog Rookie.
“He will be truly missed,” the statement also said, adding the network’s appreciation and understanding during a difficult time for their team.
